THE WAY YOU DO ASSESSMENTS IS NOT ENOUGH ANYMORE.

If you’re ready to learn the essential skills you need to take your testing practice to the next level, to optimize your testing effectiveness and accuracy, to work ethically and confidently, and to help make your students (and your practice!) thrive, then this training program is for you.  

If you are serious about optimizing your skills and being the professional whom parents will have the utmost confidence in placing their child’s needs in your hands, consider new ways to make your assessments the most effective they can be. Your assessments are critical in promoting student success.


Collaborative assessments are the hidden skills to a successful testing practice.

In this training program, you will learn:

  • The significant and incredible opportunities associated with a collaborative approach to assessment and how it can become an intervention in and of itself.

  • How to move far beyond diagnostic clarity while guiding effective treatment planning.

  • The gold standard for collaborative testing, report writing, and feedback intervention.

  • The step-by-step process in which to optimize collaborative approaches within your assessment practices.

  • How to incorporate dynamic testing and specific intervention strategies into your testing to directly inform effective recommendations for your students.

  • How to improve your flexibility with testing and how to think out of the box in planning your assessment process

  • Best practice guidelines in communicating assessment results and helping parents take up the results in actionable ways.

  • How to write effective reports geared to reader needs.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of concern in the general public about psychoeducational assessments. Not enough training, poor interpretation, cookie-cutter test batter approaches, rushed or mechanical interviews, over-reliance on generic computer-generated output, poor integration of tests results, lengthy and complicated reports that no one reads, weak recommendations that are not practical or feasible, limited discussion of results with parents, overall poor practice, and even ethical violations are all major concerns.  

Teacher Helping a Student

There is a growing need to recommit to high ethical and professional standards for quality assessments and promote the benefits of what they can actually offer. Therefore, refining our own skills and ensuring best practices will not only optimize the precision of our assessments but also promote the meaningfulness and usefulness of the assessment process.
